Cool place to take the family. Former 1920's rock quarry turned into very large pool with interesting and ornate Venetian architecture. Kids love going into caves and pools.

This place is great if you live in the area but given that there's an extra fee/ higher entrance rate for not being from the neighborhood, it may not be worth to choose it over a normal beach/ pool day somewhere else.

Got a decent peek at this. It was great to see it without people there but did not get a full sense of its wonder. So glad to see they have renovated it to keep it functional. Truly lovely!

When in Coral Gables, you must check out Venetian Pool. The pool was created in 1923 from a coral rock quarry, where much of the original coral rock was used to border and further accentuate the pool. It also features two large historic lookout towers,...More

Yes. They even allowed ordering out and having our food brought in if we wished. At the time, the restaurant was being renovated. So, I do not know if that had any bearing on the situation.
